CoPS is administered to each child in the form of up to 9 games
each with attractive graphics and cartoon characters. As the
child plays the games the computer records his or her cognitive
skills, such as short term memory, phonological awareness, auditory
and colour discrimination. The computer accurately records each
child's responses and generates a graphical profile of his or
her cognitive abilities using standardised norms. Using this
profile the teacher can create Individual Educational Plans
for children as appropriate. The software can be administered
by non-teaching assistants.
Friends measures visual sequential memory. The child must try
to remember the order and colour of several of Zoid's friends

Letters measures visual sequential memory. The pupil is asked
to remember a short sequence of shapes which appear on the screen.
Rabbits assesses visual sequential and spatial memory. A rabbit
appears in several burrows - the child must remember which burrows

pupil's performance. Printouts are available at a click of the
